After reading this remarkable book, I was astounded at how clever Agatha Christie is at strategizing and clever weaving such a mysterious plot. Agatha Christie knows how to keep the reader in the book at the right momentum. . I also loved the imaginative names created, loved the way she included a drawing plan, it was just a superb read, very gripping. The story starts off as The Orient Express train stops dead in its tracks, by a snowdrift, after which, a murder is committed. Who- And why- As Hercule Poirot investigates. I recommend this book to, as always, to Agatha Christie fans, if you are new to her books, this is a good one to start of with, to anyone who loves mysteries with a touch of wittyness and if you want a gripping read that keeps you guessing, then this one is for you.
